The Hana Mod Clone 18650 Version $56

I think this is the final form of the Hana clone. There have been minis, DNA20 versions, but now the clone hunters will get their DNA30 version. The main difference between this version and the previous ones to reach the Chinese suppliers is the interchangeable 18650 battery. A lot of vapers such as myself prefer to use their arsenal of batteries rather than being forced to use a built in pack. There are many reasons for this. The battery packs might have questionable compositions which have a possibility of being dangerous. Even though this version has an 18650 installed already, you can pop open the mod and use your own battery. Being able to swap the battery is also nice in a pinch if you don’t have time to charge a 2000mah battery at 500mah.

It shows 30 watts! Hopefully that battery can take it.

I’ve already gone over this mod like a broken record. They are all pretty much the same with differences to the battery, the size, and the color. The DNA30 chip regulates the output by voltage or wattage and ensures a consistent battery output at any charge level. The initial response from the new owners of these Chinese Hana clones have been great. Sure there have been a few issues with some of the mods, but the majority have been well received. When considering the defective models people have received, just consider the amount of these being sold. There are probably thousands of these mods already shipped out so I don’t think they are doing too bad.

The packaging rivals many snack foods.

DNA30 DiY Board Clone $27

This is big news. Finally the DiY community can build a DNA30 mod on the cheap. This deal really enables the vaping community to try their ideas at a homemade DNA30 mod. Up until now the DNA30 boards have been very scarce and difficult to acquire. I was able to get one by staying up all night during the release and I’ve fiddled with a box mod, but I had to treat the board like it was an exotic bird. I was too terrified to really try any variation on the design since I wouldn’t be able to replace the board if I fried it. Now I can really test my skill at soldering and compact design, without much conern for the health of the board. This deal is sure to cause a spark of innovation from the vaping community.

Micro USB charging port included!

At first glance this looks just like the kit I paid $60 for. It’s got all the same pin outs and the same standard design. This is sure to cause a surge of demand for Hammond project boxes, Altoid tins and NES controllers. When I attempted to build my own box mod I had a very difficult time finding quality components. The preassembled 510 connectors I tried turned out to be junk, niether of the 2 I bought were near the quality of any of my mods. The battery holders available are also rather lackluster, I’m hoping to see new higher quality components hit the market soon. We might even start seeing preassembled boards with customizeable parts, like a DiY essentials kit, that would be nice.

I wonder if it says Hana when it boots...

There is a DNA20 available for $2 less, but don’t bother.

Keep ’em Coming! Cloupor DNA30 Box Mod Clone Preorder $68.95

I guess I’ll resort to posting the same mod multiple times in a day. Although this isn’t listed as a Hana Modz clone, it really is another. At least now we have all kinds of fun colors to make 30 watts of vapor more fun and stylish. I’ve never really cared for box mods, but I guess having 6 colors to choose from (so far) makes switching from tube mods to box mods a little easier. I know this won’t be the last time I list a box DNA mod clone, but I’m pretty sure eventually I’ll break down and buy one.

Well at least it won't get lost in my forest of brass and stainless mods

This version has no crooked logos. No logo at all. So far there are two makers listed so far, HCigar and Cloupor who are each providing their own renditions. I’m sure the rest of the army of cloners will follow suit and sell their own variation soon enough. This model is the 18650 version. It appears to be a 1:1 replica of the one I listed earlier.

The colors appear to be a slightly different shade in these photos

Hana V3 Preorder $249, V3 Mini Preorder Same Price

With all the recent buzz about the DNA30 chips being released everyone has been wondering when and where they can get one in a mod. A few lucky people got ZNA mods, but there are also a lot of fans that have been waiting for a new Hana. The Hana Mod has been around for a while and the new updated V3 will be churning out variable wattage up to 30 watts.

They sure are a colorful bunch

They sure are a colorful bunch

I don’t feature many box mods on my site, but when they’re this noteworthy they can’t be ignored. The Hana v3 takes a 18650 battery and gives it quite some flexibility. There is a built in DNA charging board with a micro USB port for charging. Otherwise it is pretty simple in its features which would be standard across the board for most DNA30 devices.

The more classic colors

The more classic colors

The alternative would be to pay $30 and get a ZNA which some vapers might prefer, if they could get one. I see it as the Hana being the mod you can beat on, and the ZNA would get polished and shined regularly. Some of the users who managed to already snag a DNA30 mod have complained about the battery life. I think this might be more of an issue with the Hana Mini which has a built in 1200mah battery. Usually when I think of a box mod I think of it as an all day vape, and I know I wouldn’t make it on 1200mah. The new 2500mah 18650’s might help with the regular Hana.

I wonder a bit about the specs listed from Hana Modz, Evolv states in their datasheet that the DNA30 has a minimum atomizer resistance of .5 Ohms, Hana Modz lists it at .3.

Here is what they say about it:

DNA30 Specs:                          Minimum               Typical                        Max

Output Power                            7 Watts                                                   30 Watts
Output Voltage                          4 Volts                                                     8.3 Volts
Output Current                                                                                         10 Amps
Atomizer Resistance                  .3 Ohms                 1.5 Ohms                3.3 Ohms
Input Voltage                             3.2 Volts                  3.7 Volts                  4.3 Volts

Presenting The ZNA30 Link Edition! $279.00

With the release of a new board already the new mods are to follow. The ZNA30 was a device I first saw on Pbusardo’s Vapercon interview with Zen and I first laid eyes on an earlier version of this beauty. Now I get to see rumored pictures of the special release day edition.

Steammonkey himself describes the mod: "I tried to get him to call it the Rocketeer. It's got a total industrial "sears tower" sorta thing going on"

I think it looks great, and my first impression was to say a futuristic bomber jacket, I think Steammonkey nailed it.

Just look at that button

The DNA30 Hits Shelves!

I wish I had more info, but the DNA30 was put up for sale, and is currently in stock! (1/16/14 12:00am est)

30 Watts!

30 Watts!

This is a controller board for Variable Wattage mods. The older model has been featured in some of the most talked about mods from last year, and it is sure to make a splash this year. This board allows users to fire atomizers as low as .5 ohms at 7-30 watts. That translates as a maximum of 8.3 volts of battery output! Good luck getting your hands on one of these, some vendors have been waiting patiently with mods in need of a brain. A good example would be Steam Monkey who has announced the ZNA 30 and in celebration placed the Link (hybrid atomizer) on sale for $75.00.

This is big news for the vaping community, keep your eyes peeled for new releases equipped with this board hitting shelves.
